Shipping container buildings have gained incredible popularity recently, and now here is another one to add to the list - the 2+ Weekend House by “Maganus Enterprises”. This mini housing unit is constructed from two stacked 20’ x 8’ x 8’ marine containers, and can be shaped according to its owner’s particular needs.

Shipping containers have become a popular choice for prefab construction due to their structural stability and ability to provide a quick frame for a building– not to mention the excess supply of them in shipping yards around the country. The designers using them are taking a wasted resource and up cycling them to give them a useful life as a home–which is also hopefully affordable. Putting it bluntly, the whole point of using shipping containers was to use up something that would end up wasted otherwise, not necessarily because everyone loved the look.


Our Accommodation units are spacious and uniquely designed with elegant interiors to make one feel cozy and enjoy blissful bedroom comforts. Accessories such as Single/Double Bunk/Folding type Beds with Mattress, covers, pillows, blankets etc. Cupboards, Lockers, Dressing Tables, Writing Table can be installed. The accessories can be provided & suited to the climatic conditions of the surrounding environment.
